Evening Ginkgo Leaves Framed Giclee 'Canvas With Contemporary Black'
Ginkgo leaves, each with a unique shape, size and color drift dramatically down. Walking into the gallery one morning, Carrie found hundreds of unique leaves in the grass under the Ginkgo trees lining Ninth street in Holland, Michigan. She collected handfuls and left them piled on the counters in the shop for days just to enjoy them as she worked. The leaves inspired a collection of paintings, beginning with realistic renditions and then moving to this magnified version in deep autumn colors on a dramatic dark background.
This version is a giclee created on canvas which is then sealed with 4 coats of clear uv protective acrylic and mounted on an acid free backer. Lake Effect frames this piece in a clean lined, thin flat black metal frame that has a dropped in inner edge which casts a subtle shadow and adds dimension.
